The Norwegian e-commerce company Netthandelsgruppen is among the largest in Norway. A company that rapidly continues to increase its sales.
Netthandelsgruppen operates the online stores Tights.no, Comfyballs.no and Weightless.no, all well known in Norway. Tights.no is the largest and most famous site where you can find everything within exercise, diet and healthy lifestyle. This year, Netthandelsgruppen has doubled its turnover and expects to exceed NOK 300 million by the end of the year. In 2019, the turnover landed at 150 million kroner.
Great focus on expansion
Until now, the company has only had one Norwegian warehouse, in Ryen in Oslo. But after a year of explosive growth, it is necessary to increase capacity. From the new warehouse, the plan is to send goods to the whole world.
We have grown enormously in the last year and have simply not had the physical space. Tights.no has the largest growth in Norway, but Comfyballs also has strong growth in Sweden and abroad. Netthandelsgruppen will therefore centralize in Sweden and serve all our Swedish customers from the new warehouse there.
Since June 1 2020, Netthandelsgruppen has a cooperation agreement with Boxon when it comes to packaging.
“We buy almost everything within packaging from Boxon, ie labels, tape, stretch film, bubble wrap and then everything when it comes to boxes and corrugated. We are very satisfied, says Johan Nordström, Head of Logistics at Netthandelsgruppen, who intends a further and expanded collaboration in the future.
From now on, they buy all packaging from us except the e-commerce bags that we are still working on, says Frank Vee who is Boxon’s sales contact towards Netthandelsgruppen. He continues “From June until now, they have ordered a great amount of packaging from us and it will only increase even more.
The most popular box is a quick bottom box for the e-commerce company Tights.no. I suggested a few different models before we ended up with this solution. It is a quick bottom box that does not need to be taped and has the possibility to be adjusted in height, so no filling material is needed. When they tested this solution, they were so pleased that they ordered a large amount immediately. Another product we have developed is a combined standard 6-box and modular box for drink trays. This solution is now being developed even more, with printing and a quick solution for faster packaging time.
“They are very open to innovation and new thinking and wanted a partner who could help them get better. Something we have tried to live up to as well as possible, says Frank Vee.
Netthandelsgruppen wants to grow even more and are now loading for the upcoming Black Friday. “It will be incredibly exciting this year, Lafossan Manohar, Warehouse Manager concludes.
